[R] A glitch (???) in tools::texi2pf.

I can understand Rolf's concern. Make is a tool that is very helpful,
but also not trivial to learn how to make work. If a good Makefile
has been set up, then things are easy, but I've generally found my
skills limited to fairly simple Makefiles.

I would suggest that what is needed is a bit of modest collaboration
to set up a Makefile for dealing with this issue that has enough comments
so it is clear what Make will be doing. I suspect that in this case the
need is to remove the offending .bbl file and then run the tex*** operations.
Possibly the result is small enough to post in this thread. Anyone?

Cheers, JN
